Osteoporosis is a progressive disease that infects bone density and quality, leading to an increased risk of bone fractures and reduced quality of life. Dr. Saijyot Raut’s clinic is the best destination for Osteoporosis Treatment in Mumbai.
Osteoporosis occurs when the body makes less bone tissues, loses more bone tissues, or both. Given below are the common causes of Osteoporosis:
Calcium deficiency :
A lifelong deficiency of calcium plays a big role in the development of Osteoporosis. Low calcium levels lead to decreased bone density, early bone loss, and increased fracture risk. In addition, a lack of vitamin D can also result in Osteoporosis.
Low estrogen in women and testosterone deficiency in men accelerates Osteoporosis. In addition, an imbalance in other hormones such as parathyroid hormone and growth hormone also leads to bone loss. For instance, too much parathyroid causes calcium loss in the urine at the expense of bone.
People with an inactive lifestyle or a condition like paralysis or muscular dystrophy are more likely to suffer from Osteoporosis. It happens because bones tend to get weakened if they aren’t worked.
Generally, there are no symptoms of Osteoporosis in its early stages. But once Osteoporosis weakens the bones, the patients show the following symptoms:
The non-surgical treatment for established Osteoporosis may include exercise, vitamin and mineral supplements, and medications.
Osteoporosis medications commonly prescribed include bisphosphonates, receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand inhibitors, estrogen agonists, or antagonists.
Weight-bearing, resistance, and balance exercises are the most important for Osteoporosis.
Eating a healthy diet and ensuring that you are getting enough calcium and vitamin D is crucial to cure Osteoporosis.
The most common surgeries to treat spinal fractures due to Osteoporosis are Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty. These are minimally invasive procedures that use thin tubes to inject orthopedic bone cement into the affected vertebrae.
Percutaneous Vertebroplasty (PV) is an effective treatment for relieving pain in patients complaining of severe back pain induced by osteoporotic compression fractures. The success rate of Vertebropla exceeds 90%, and the complication rate is lower than 1%.
Kyphoplasty is also known as balloon vertebroplasty. It treats vertebral compression fractures by inflating a balloon to restore bone height then injecting bone cement into the vertebral body.
